A school redevelopment with a Māori and Pasifika theme has won Opus Architecture award from the New Zealand Institute of Architects.

The jury says Porirua College is now effective, airy with light-filled spaces that transforms attendance and learning outcomes.

Principal architect Bruce Curtain says weaving patterns were built into the walls and floors, and student designs incorporated into acoustic wall panels.

He says glass walls are having a positive effect on student behaviour.

National's 'alternative facts' when it comes to Water quality
MARTYN 'BOMBER' BRADBURY: It seems that with the Government's bold claim of making 90% of NZs rivers 'swimmable' by 2040, is more like Donald Trump's 'alternative facts' than true care about the state of our polluted rivers and lakes.

PAUL MOON: It was all going so well. The Maori Party looked revitalised, and heading into election year could claim successes in its flagship Whanau Ora programme, as well as being part of a government that has concluded some of the most important Treaty settlements in a generation.
